Holy Grail

 

Gregory P. Bufithis, Esq.

11 February 2014 – The scientists at DARPA … the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency … say the current methods of searching the Internet for all manner of information just won’t cut it in the future. Yesterday the agency announced a program that would aim to totally revamp Internet search and “revolutionize the discovery, organization and presentation of search results.”

Specifically, the goal of DARPA’s Memex program is to develop software that will enable domain-specific indexing of public web content and domain-specific search capabilities. According to the agency the technologies developed in the program will also provide the mechanisms for content discovery, information extraction, information retrieval, user collaboration, and other areas needed to address distributed aggregation, analysis, and presentation of web content.
